On the morning of 15th January, the Ministry for Foreign Relations in China was the setting for a meeting between the Equatorial Guinea Ambassador to the People’s Republic of China, and the Sub-director General of the Africa Department.
German Ekua Sima Abaga was received in audience by the Sib-director General of the Africa Department, Xiao Han, to review, among other matters, the excellent relations of friendship and cooperation existing between the Republic of Equatorial Guinea and the people’s Republic of China.
Ekua Sima passed on his best wishes for the Chinese New Year, and stated that for 2019 he hoped the bilateral relations could continue to strengthen, as had been the case in 2018; particularly taking into account that the African Union Peace and Security Council, of which Equatorial Guinea currently holds the presidency, takes African affairs as a priority; in addition to the Presidency of the United Nations Security Council, which Equatorial Guinea will take up from February. For these reasons, Equatorial Guinea and China believe it to be opportune to provide mutual support when facing international bodies, thanks to the good relations which exist between the two, in favour of a fair, balanced, peaceful world.
The Ambassador also declared that Equatorial Guinea wishes to provide a fresh boost to the China-Africa Economic and Trade Exhibition, which is to be held in June in the city of Hunan, and where it will be possible to display to the world the great collaboration by Chinese companies in Equatorial Guinea, together with the huge tourism, culture and trade potential of our country.
For Xiao Han, bilateral cooperation is at its best moment. He affirmed that China will always support Equatorial Guinea, and described this meeting as very important in order to continue to promote bilateral relations.
During the audience, the Ambassador was accompanied by the Third Secretary from the Embassy, Tiberio Edu Okenve Abegue.
